Doing Electrical Work at Home?
Electrical work can be done in a home by the homeowner, occupant or Licensed Electrical Contractor.
Homeowners and occupants of a home in Ontario can do their own electrical work. If you choose to do the work yourself, ensure it is done according to the Ontario Electrical Safety Code.
A Licensed Electrical Contractor
Hire a Licensed Electrical Contractor (LEC). A Licensed Electrical Contractor understands the safety requirements associated with electrical installations. It is best to leave to professionals who have the expertise, equipment and training to install electrical wiring, new fixtures, or outlets, upgrade electrical panel boards and other similar projects.
What is the benefit to hire Licensed Electrical Contractor
All Licensed Electrical Contractors :
- Are fully insured to protect customers
- Are qualified to perform the type of electrical work required
- Employ only certified electricians
- Arrange electrical permits and inspections
- Can provide a Certificate of Inspection
As a homeowner, make sure to always ask for a Certificate of Inspection when the electrical work is complete. This is important for resale and insurance purposes, as well as peace of mind. Only a Licensed Electrical Contractor can provide you with an ESA Certificate of Inspection, and it is confirmation that the electrical work done in your home was completed according to the Ontario Electrical Safety Code.
